Currently that would be the rx 470. However if we are counting sales then this RX 480 is a better bang for your buck.

I'd say RX 480 or GTX 1060. Whichever you can get for the lowest price. Some games like one better, some the other, but I'd say go for the cheapest one you can grab. I've seen 4GB RX 480 models hitting $170 with rebates (kack), but the base prices for both lowest-ram cards have been in the $190 range.

The biggest question is RAM: If you can squeeze the extra $30, I'd probably get the card with the bigger ram (6GB 1060 over a 3GB, 8GB 480 over 4GB).

Pick your team Red or Green, flip a coin, get whichever has the $XXX.98 vs. the $XXX.99 price, whatever. I have an 8GB RX 480 reference I grabbed on launch day at MSRP and have not been upset with it. I'm sure I'd be just has happy with a 1060 6GB (but it wasn't available when I bought, so it was never an option).

R9 Fury - Sapphire Nitro lol. I got one off Newegg for $244 + $20 rebate. Best bang for buck imo atm. Easily beats a 470, 1060, 480 etc.
